There’s something magical about starting up a new computer for the first time. As it efficiently whirs along and quickly gets you to the setup screen, you probably can’t help but notice how fast everything works.

That depends entirely on how you use your network today, or how you may use it
If you’re looking to access your external hard drive without having to deal with the archaic method of lugging it around your home and plugging it into every device with which you need to use it, there are two simple solutions on how to share your external hard drive via your Wi-Fi network.

It’s quite common to have an old computer die on you and not have it repaired, especially if it’s more than a few years old. But what can you do with the old carcass? If a computer dies for any reason other than a dead hard drive, you can always convert the old drive into an external unit, and grab important files off the drive in the process. The same thing can be done if you install a larger hard drive in your computer and don’t know what to do with the old one. The first thing you should do before investing any time and money in an old

Some of us are returning to work in the office, but for others, it seems like work from home is going to be the new normal. If you have been working from home and attending meetings virtually, you’re probably familiar with the ear fatigue that can develop
